  • A Reading List With New Common Sense

    It is that time of the year again: Christmas gift list guides are out. (Find out which book made both the Claremont Institute’s book list and Virginia State Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s reading list!)

    If you are looking for the perfect gift, a good book for the airplane, or something to do while the in-laws are visiting, check out the New Common Sense book list. In addition to our First Principles perspective on the issues of the day, the weekly e-newsletter New Common Sense features a book of interest on the American Founding, Progressivism, Conservatism, and many other topics. Here are just a few of the books that we have featured this past year:

    American Founding

    The Constitution



    Foreign Policy


    Already own these books? Peruse the Heritage Bookstore and sign up for New Common Sense. You never know what we’ll be reading next.

      There are some great suggestions here. But pehaps you should add some books for liberals by liberals. How can you defeat your adversaries if you do not know how they think?

      I would guess Michele Bachmann's choice would be 'Earmarks, Built A Bridge to Nowhere'!

      Right. It is the Liberals who have already been turned Inside Out! They hate America, they hate our Representative Form Of Government! The real threat to the Government comes opposite from where Eric Holder said! The Democratic Party has been usurped by Communists and now run into the ground leaving real Democrats explosive! Watch! The Students, the Union Members will be played by Obama! The Democrats still don't know their Party was usurped by Communists! Wait til they find out! Then it is going to be "All politicians betrayed us!" But that is just cover for the awful betrayal of Obama, DINOs and RINOs in Congress.

      These poor befuddled Democrats need some good books to read! But more than anything, they need Justice! The New House should investigate and expose the whole lousy mess that certifiable Communists have caused our Nation!

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer
